I have been providing support to individuals for over twenty years in one capacity or another. I initially began as a PSW and many of my clients and families were struggling with palliative and end of life decisions. Often I would extend my visits to allow for time to listen to their concerns. I found fulfillment when providing this special level of care.
As my professional journey continued I became a Social Service Worker and later received my End of Life Doula Certificate. I was very fortunate to have enjoyed an accomplished career in health care for fourteen years. Providing guidance and council to the sick and dying, as well as their families, gave me the opportunity to fully use my skills. Guidance, compassion , empathy, and sharing my knowledge are my core strengths.
Whether you are needing help with end of life decisions, experiencing a difficult life transition or have recently lost someone close to you, open and heartfelt conversation can bring clarity and control back into your life.
My vision is that those experiencing a difficult life event, will have access to all of the options available to them, and their voice will be heard. My mission is to provide comfort, support and advocacy to those in their time of need. My hope is that we all will have the opportunity to live our lives to the fullest until our last breath.
May you find peace and comfort from the relationships that have enriched your life.
With love and gratitude, Cindy
